Washington (CNN) – The National Republican Senatorial Committee again edged out the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee last month, while the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee kept up its winning streak in November - and Democratic campaign committees in the House and Senate both maintained their massive cash-on-hand advantage over their GOP counterparts.
The NRSC pulled in $3.3 million to the DSCC's $3.0 million, the committees said Friday.
The NRSC pointed to the $1 million increase over figures at the same point in the last off-year cycle; in November 2007, the committee pulled in $2.3 million. The NRSC reported ending November with no debt, but its cash-on-hand - $7.3 million - while a significant increase over October COH numbers, are well below the more than $10 million it had in the bank two years ago.
The DSCC, which spent $2.5 million last month, has $11 million cash-on-hand and $1.7 million in debt.
Last month, the NRSC reported raking in $4 million for October, slightly ahead of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee's $3.72 million. The DSCC had $11.32 million cash on hand for that month, with debt of just over $2 million.
On the House side, Democrats kept up their fundraising dominance over congressional Republicans in November: The DCCC pulled in $3.65 million last month, the committee said Friday. The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $2.3 million, and spent nearly as much: $2.2 million.
The DCCC also retained a major cash-on-hand advantage over the NRCC, reporting $15.35 million to the GOP committee's $4.35 million. The NRCC, carries $2 million in debt; the DCCC spent $2.8 million, carrying debt of nearly $2.7 million.
Democrats are defending 19 Senate seats next year, one more than Republicans.
